General Session:

Building an Intentional Executive Brand

Your executive presence has a surprising degree of impact on your ability to influence, as it is how people experience you. In contrast, your personal brand is how you will be remembered. If you are unaware how you are seen and you are not intentional in how you want to be seen, it is nearly impossible to develop an influential presence. Therefore, to gain the influence you need, develop an intentional personal brand that is communicated as your executive presence.
